Why are some countries more successful in racing ahead in the new global economic battleground over smart and green economy than others? In this talk, I present findings from an ongoing research project examining the Korean, Taiwanese and Singaporean governments’ efforts to promote smarter, greener and stronger energy infrastructure – as developmental platforms to drive new technological and export capabilities. I show that competitive advantage in the new digital economy is highly dependent on the state’s ability to craft new public and private linkages in the form of ‘hybridized industrial ecosystems’. Therefore, the success of Korean and Australian initiatives to build new green industries such as ‘green hydrogen’ will be dependent on building the institutional capacity to leverage (not displace) the nation’s innovation champions.
